As a Mindful Rebel, I redesigned every job I’ve had. The inspiration for it usually had something to do with imagining the future, engaging people on what it means to show up everyday and creating inclusive and equitable workplaces where all are treated with dignity, fairly, and have a sense of belonging. Especially if the job involved arming myself with a standard issue suit of armour for what was cubicle warfare and is now a virtual battle of Zooms. The only thing “uniform” in the workplace that should really matter is presence.
Style, like high performance, is the outcome of meaningful evolution. The expectation of cookie-cutter, if anything, amped up my longing to be the multi-passionate me beyond any box on organization chart. I’ve never done well fitting into anything narrow, especially minds.
I’ve actually been what is now known as a multi-hyphenate creative since I can remember. It started with being the class conscious disruptor in my single digit youth challenging status quo, then mock-trial lead defense attorney in high school – shoulder pad power suit and all (live & learn, right?). In college I was the unofficial career, personal brand, & image coach. By the time I was in the working world, assisting companies and their leaders to find their voice, I realized I should’ve been pursuing this multi-niche magic more directly. But the work was good and frankly, we all know every company could use a good makeover.
Today, I’m living and learning the best of who I am:
Helping people shine from within. Sometimes in the mirror and always at work. Owning your strengths and who you are is the secret sauce to success.
Making organizations shine so people can be more of their best self, full time. From the little details and graces to the big blind spots, I connect the dots between what’s next in the world of work, inclusive & equitable design, and collaborating through the right technology to simplify living & launching stories worth retelling.
Building brand & culture strategy. Researching, writing, humanizing, contouring, blending and other novel ways to transform human potential into playing for performance (if it’s not fun what’s the point?)
People deserve a life well-lived and self-loved. One of these days I’ll launch the @RocktheGlow.com website – a guide to Playing Smart and Feeling Fabulous through wellbeing, empowerment, and joy.
My vibe is providing strategy & consulting services to companies who believe in empathy-based approaches to transforming workplaces through human-centred, branded talent & culture initiatives. My hive appreciates that leopard print + leading for the future is a force to be reckoned with because if you can’t be yourself, you’re hustling to make someone else’s dreams come true.
